The Wendelstein 7-X (W7X) stellarator did it! (First of all, how awesome is the term 'stellarator'?) Sure, it's just a baby step toward anything even remotely practical, but IT WORKED.
I'm stunned at how everyone I know is just shrugging at this feat (including a Boeing engineer). How have we become so jaded that KINDLING A TINY SUN is passe? This makes going to the moon and back look like a camping trip.
Also, I finally broke down and did it. There's a Direman Press Facebook group page.
